Damilano Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi 2010
A touch of ash, some very nice fruit tones, very floral, herbal, spicy, slightly brambly red fruit. Sweet in the mouth on entry, a bit matte, nicely expressed fruit but a touch forced and compressed, low-key slightly weedy, slightly herbal, slightly green tomato-scented wild raspberry fruit. Hint of nettle and herb, a bit rich, and a touch clumsy perhaps but nice fruit. (86-87pts)Add winemaker's notes

External Reviews for Damilano Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi
Starts out supple, with the smooth texture framing black cherry, bitter almond and licorice notes. A firm base of tannins is offset by sweet fruit, as this glides to a lingering aftertaste of tobacco, spice and cherry. Best from 2013 through 2032.
The prized Cannubi cru offers fruit that is interpreted by some of the finest winemakers in northern Italy. This expression from the dynamic Damilano winery is characterized by tight tannins, power, personality and ripe berry flavors. Pair this Barolo with risotto topped with thinly shaved truffles.
Damilano’s 2006 Barolo Cannubi emerges from the glass with surprising richness and weight. Berries, flowers and spices flow effortlessly from this rich, textured Cannubi. The wine shows quite a bit more depth than is usually the case for a vineyard that tends towards the feminine, but the textural elegance and silkiness on the mid-palate and finish serve to provide a sense of proportion. Fine, elegant tannins frame the close. This is another fine effort from Damilano. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2026.
A rich and complex wine composed of 100% Nebbiolo born in a great year that is known for its early maturing and accessibility qualities.
Ultraclean yet rich and generous, with raspberry and truffle character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a very long finish. This is like touching cashmere. It caresses your taste buds. Best wine ever from here. Best after 2009.
Damilano is one of Barolo's historic wineries and Cannubi its most historic vineyard cru. All that history combines here to shape a traditional, yet New World wine with plush roundness and intense notes of spice, leather, pipe tobacco, polished red wood and black currant. It's luscious, velvety and tight in the mouth and will improve with age. Drink with venison or game.
Deep red-ruby. Black cherry, truffle and nutty oak on the slightly medicinal nose. Lush, sweet, broad and rich, with impressive volume but also good grip and verve. Offers a fine-grained texture and lovely sweetness of fruit. Finishes fresh and persistent. Next to this, the Liste seems dry.
